The medicine Shield shirts are now available
through Tom at the New Jersey address. They sell for $6.50 plus $1.50 for
postage. The symbols on the shirt have very special meanings: the central skull
is a deer skull, symbol of the last track; on the forehead of the skull is the
coyote paw, Tom's symbol; the chickadee represents the chickadee philosophy and
way of life; the medicine pipe has four large feathers representing each of the
four directions; the two small feathers hanging from the bowl represent the
Great Spirit and the Earth Mother; the bowl is a symbol of the Earth Mother's
bones because it is made of stone; the stem represents all growing things
because it is made of wood; all the symbols are all contained within the sacred
circle, representing the never ending circle of life.
